Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye TP Vol 1 Going Underground
By

Rating
Cave Carson has a cybernetic eye. But you knew that already. The question is, why was this spelunking adventurer fitted with a bionic implant and what do the visions it's giving him mean? Before his cybernetic eye started showing Cave Carson a world outside his own, he had retired from his life of exploring the center of the Earth with his wife, Eileen, and they had settled into a comfortable, if not mundane, existence above the surface. That is, until Eileen got sick. Now, newly widowed, a knock on the door of Cave's underground lab has brought him back into the world he thought he left behind, beneath the surface of the Earth. Co-written by Gerard Way (DOOM PATROL) and Jon Rivera (HEARTBREAK), with stunning art by Michael Avon Oeming (POWERS), this absurdist take on one of DC's more obscure spelunkers explores love and loss, and the line between reality and perception. Collects issues #1-6. CAVE CARSON HAS A CYBERNETIC EYE is a part of DC's Young Animal--a four-book, grassroots, mature reader imprint, creatively spearheaded by Gerard Way, bridging the gap between the DC Universe and Vertigo, and focusing on the juxtaposition between visual and thematic storytelling.

Reviews

"Not only possesses the best title of any comic in recent memory--the third launch of Gerard Way's Young Animal imprint is one of the wildest and most inventive comics in years." --PASTE MAGAZINE " Another strong debut for the Young Animal imprint." --NEWSARAMA "it's a compelling character study of a man grieving the loss of his wife and trying to maintain his connection to his daughter while dealing with a dramatic increase in strange shit surrounding him. Gerard Way and Jon Rivera's story is rooted in the pulp adventurer past of their title character, but it's moving in a much more high-concept direction that blends a number of genres into something unique and engaging."--A.V. CLUB/THE ONION
